Subject: Pickpockets
Hello Cat In almost 60 years I've only had 2 encounters with pickpockets. One failed one in Rome last year. One succesful in Barcelona this year, due to a chain of events including combination of miscommunication between Helen and myself, lapse of attention/memory on my part (tiredness? the circumstances?) and overconfidence. This one wasn't too bad due to insurance and the fact that Helen had a card that didn't have to be cancelled. I'm convinced it *could* happen again (might never though), the answer is to make sure it doesn't matter much. Doug Birmingham, England
